Discussion: Library vs. Book Store
It's a debate folks. Library vs Book Stores. Which do you like better and why?
I like both for various reasons.
I'll always go to the library for a classic. There are also many great books out there that the book stores do not carry anymore, and the library will always have. When I have no money I head on over to the library too. I also know I'll get the attention from the librarian, who will usually have a Masters Degree in some kind of Literature or Library and Information Science. They will always have the time to help me find just what I'm looking for, instead of just stacking books and having no idea what I'm looking for. They usually have some great reading programs, book clubs, and community programs to get into.
I'll go to a book store for new and notable titles. I can usually count on them having the latest releases or some great 3 for 2 deal that I can't pass up. I also love adding books to my personal library too.
Which do you use on a regular basis? Your local Library or the book store? Is there something you like more about one than the other? Let me know your thoughts!
